ede Gaming, a supplier of software to the online gaming industry, is to kick-start 2019 with a concerted expansion in Spain.
The Bede platform is fully-licensed by the DGOJ, the Spanish gaming authority, and features a wide range of marketing tools alongside a portfolio of more than 3,000 games and two direct sportsbooks with Kambi and SBTech live on the platform.
Responsible gambling is central to the Bede platform, with deposit limits and automated flagging of players displaying signs of problem gambling behaviour setting it apart as the safest place to play.
Ross Haselhurst, commercial director, Bede Gaming, said: “Spain is a core target market for Bede as we look to capitalise on the significant commercial momentum of our platform. Spanish operator groups are well placed to take advantage of the transformative impact our vast range of high-quality content and powerful automated marketing tools can have, and we are enthused by the possibilities as we push further into the market.
“We are seeing more and more operators that are looking to expand their footprint but find themselves crippled by the resources required to service new markets while maintaining performance in their core markets. By offering a direct and single route into the Spanish market, we’re predicting significant growth for Bede and our partners in the months to come.”
The growth opportunity in the Spanish market is clear, with online GGR rising 30% year-on-year during Q3 2018 according to the DGOJ.
The provider’s technology is already live in the Spanish market with the operator Enracha.
Bede has enjoyed a period of commercial growth, having been selected by the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation in September 2018 to provide the lottery’s new enterprise-wide digital platform.
This agreement came alongside a series of recent content integrations with leading providers including Play’n GO and SBTech.
